Captain Rick Raines didn’t know what he was getting himself into when he meets Karl, a young man who stirs Rick’s passion even as he tries to find out the secrets that hide behind this man’s eyes. With contraband cargo, privateers and mystery that swirl around Karl, Rick will find himself drawn in a war that will either kill him or give him the best thing- Karl’s heart.

BEYOND MERIDIAN is a fast paced futuristic adventure from start to finish. I love the dynamics between Capt. Raines and Karl as they banter back and forth while dodging privateers and talking their way past trouble. C. C. Bridges is a new author to me and I am definitely going to check out more of this author’s books. With a fast paced storyline, multi-dimensional characters and some steamy M/M sex scenes, you find yourself lost in the cosmos as BEYOND MERIDIAN heats up to spiral out of control.

Meet Captain Rick Raines, who is intrigued when a young, brash Karl asks to join his crew and when Karl finds cargo for the ship, Rick finds himself with more questions than answers. Karl is a man on a mission for the UPA and he doesn’t trust Rick yet with his secrets. Deep in enemy space, two men will find that the battle has just begun not only for Karl’s mission but for their hearts as well. These two characters go so well together. I loved how Rick melts when Karl is near him even as he fought the emotions that were connecting them together and Karl yearns to give Rick all his secrets. With some wonderful secondary characters that keep the story flowing, C. C. Bridges delivers a spine tingling story that will leave you wanting more.

is a really enjoyable story that leaves you breathless. I am hoping this author goes back for more adventures with Rick, Karl and the United Planetary Alliance. If you enjoy a good futuristic story with some interesting characters, then grab BEYOND MERIDIAN. It will transport you to the cosmos and beyond.
